Legionaries seen likely to experience financial decline
Catholic World News - June 15, 2010
The Legionaries of Christ, once among the wealthier orders in the Catholic Church may suffer a significant fundraising setback as a result of relevations about misconduct by the order’s founder and a subsequent Vatican crackdown, the Reuters news agency reports. (Warning: the story is long on speculation, short on hard facts.)
An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

Although my family and I will be eternally grateful for what Regnim Christi/LC did for us, there is no precedent of an ongoing order whose founder was--at best--a fraud. Not sure where they go from here, but business as usual doesn't seem an option. A tragedy!
